Nina is a Nina Simone tribute album recorded by Xiu Xiu. The idea for the album came while Jamie Stewart was on tour with Swans. Nina was recorded in a day. The album features Jamie Stewart's voice, Ches Smith on drums, Tim Berne and Tony Malaby on saxophones, Andrea Parkins on accordion, and Mary Halvorson on guitar. The latter four had experience in avant jazz. The album reimagines rather than recreates Nina. Nina - Xiu Xiu.

Album 2012 11 Songs. Alternative Nina, Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart pays homage to her restless talent and spirit instead of trying to re-create her sound. He finds his own voice - literally and figuratively - for these songs, and makes some provocative choices. Nina opens with one of its boldest tracks, a version of Don't Smoke in Bed where Stewart's voice sounds like it's been raked over the coals, brass erupts in fits and starts, and the overall mood is raw anguish instead of a wry farewell. It sets the tone for the rest of the album, which runs with the more progressive aspects of Simone&. Here Xiu Xiu takes on the Nina Simone songbook, offering covers of songs like Don't Explain, Wild Is the Wind, and Four Women. While the concept looks intriguing on paper, the execution leaves something to be desired. Released December 3, 2013. Nina Tracklist. Don't Smoke In Bed Lyrics
